Lyrics

Indecision

Written By: Alexandra Delgado

Inde-, indeci-, inde-, indecision
Inde-, indeci-, inde-, indecision

In indecision there is, there is decision.
There also, also, also is incision.

It starts as soon as I wake up
about my first cup.
Should it be tea, should it be coffee?

Inde-, indeci-, inde-, indecision

It hardly stops there
I have to think about my hair
and worse what,
what should I wear?

In indecision there is, there is decision.
There also, also, also is incision.

If I wear these pants my thighs will look too fat.
If I wear, wear this skirt my butt, it will stick out.

Uh torment, pain and stress
I know my hair will still remain a
mess
and I’m not, not even dressed.

Too ma-, too many decisions
will give me a concu-, will give me a concussion.

Inde-, indeci,-inde-, indecision
Inde-, indeci-, inde-, indeci-inde, indecision

Ah paralysing choices
taunting me with evil voices
preventing me from picking between a or b.

Now I know the answer was, the answer was c or maybe, maybe was it d?

Inde-, indeci-, inde-, you know the rest.

Torment, stress and pain
as I’m trying to choose in vain
should I take the bus to work or instead take the train?

Uh pain and stress and torment
attacking me while I look dormant
impeding me from getting out of bed.

In indecision there only is indecision.
How to decide when this complaining should end?

In indecision there is no, no indecision.
When will it end indeci-, inde-...


Sentimental Idiot

Written By: Alexandra Delgado

D’you feel you’re in a junkyard, the antique shop from hell.
Welcome to my home, you can browse all you want
but I’ve nothing to sell.

I see the worry in your eyes, the look of dismay.
I know why though I’m kind of ashamed
but I might as well say.
Oh God.

I’m a sentimental idiot. I keep and save
all the stupid junk and little bits that come in his name.
Strands of hair, shirts he’d wear, a bicycle lock.
It’s so pathetic I can’t throw out his dirty old sock.

It’s like being in an anti-museum.You can touch anything.
If you break things too well I’ll thank you cause
that’s what I need.

I’ve heard it’s some disorder. Could be in my genes.
It’s getting so bad I can’t find my own bed.
Must find the means to change.
Help me.

I’m a sentimental idiot.That part you know.
Haven’t made much progress and it shows.
Now’s the time. Take control. It’s a must.
Gonna join Sentimental Idiots Anonymous.

Have to flush those photographs.
Rip those letters in half.
I’m about to scream
cause I can’t get rid of his shaving cream.

I’m a sentimental idiot. Can’t seem to change.
I would like to get rid of it. This stuff is a pain.
Now joke, I’ve got one true wish :
to grill his stinking goldfish.

I’m a mental, sentimental, fundamental idiot.
Detrimental to my health.
I’m gonna be sick.
